Invitation & Referrals
Once you have identified someone who could benefit from the Health Link, please explain the Health Link to them, and get their agreement for you to refer them to the Health Link.
It is important that you understand the basic process, so that you can help to answer any questions: Health Link for Providers
We have found that it can be complicated to explain the Health Link concept, so here is a handout that you could provide to your patient: Health Link for Patients
Once your patient has accepted the invitation to the Health Link, you can make the referral.
There are 3 ways to make a referral:
- EMR message to HLS (Health Link Coordinator), providing the patient name and general reason for the referral.
- Download and complete The SGBCHL Referral Form and fax to the Health Link Coordinator at 705-444-1393
- Send a Portal message to Healthlink@gbfht.ca with completed referral form attached
If you have any questions at all, contact the Health Link Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 705-444-5885 and ask for the Health Link Coordinator.
